Injectables & Dermal Fillers
Everyone, eventually, starts to notice that they no longer look as young and vibrant as they once did. Yet not everyone is interested in or ready for the extensive rejuvenation of a surgical facelift. Today’s powerful, next-generation injectable rejuvenation treatments can deliver powerful, long-lasting facial rejuvenation that can address multiple problem zones in order to reduce the signs of aging, enhance your facial contours, and restore your beautiful, youthful glow.*
Injectable rejuvenation treatments are non-invasive and non-surgical, but that does not mean they are without risk or that you should trust just any practitioner. Injectable treatments do still carry risk, however small, of potential complications and can result in an unnatural, “worked on” appearance. Therefore, it is critical to select a skilled, qualified, Board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Jacob Bloom at Bloom Plastic Surgery in Chicago, IL who understands how these next-generation treatments blend with and augment your naturally-beautiful facial contours.
Injectable dermal fillers are an ideal option for individuals seeking to minimize the visible signs of aging on the face without the cost and downtime required by surgical rejuvenation procedures. Most of the dermal fillers offered at Bloom Plastic Surgery (except Kybella) are designed to augment the skin’s natural levels of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA helps our skin retain moisture, which gives it the smooth, plump, healthy glow of youth. Unfortunately, as we age, our HA levels decrease, leaving the skin dry, rough, and wrinkled with uneven skin tone and a worn, gaunt appearance.
Kybella is a specialized injectable treatment designed specifically to target and reduce the appearance of submental fullness, or excess fatty tissue under the chin that gives the appearance of a double chin. Kybella injections are comprised of an FDA-approved, prescription-strength formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that helps the body remove dietary fat. When carefully injected under the chin, Kybella kills a layer of fat cells so they can be reabsorbed into the body for a sleek, slim chin.
Injectable treatments can be performed in our office and usually require no more than 15 or 20 minutes. No anesthesia is required, although some patients may find the use of a topical anesthetic more comfortable. Side effects are usually minimal and temporary—slight redness and swelling at the injection sites being most common—and patients can return to all normal activities immediately.
